We offer a wonderful summer-time glacier dog sledding trip, in combination with a scenic flight to and from Punch Bowl Glacier. We only book 2 to 6 people, so each trip is basically a private tour!!!
Your tour starts from the Girdwood airport, at Alpine Air Alaska’s hangar, where we suit you up for the snowy glacier. After we make sure you have your sunglasses and camera, you hop in a helicopter for a 10 minute scenic flight (keep an eye out for wildlife) up through Girdwood’s mountainous valley. Once on the glacier, you will meet your guide, Dario Martinez, and his enthusiastic Alaskan Huskies.
You will learn all about the Alaskan Huskies,driving a dog team, a musher’s lifestyle, and the famous Iditarod trail. Learn to drive the sled yourself, or settle back in the sled and just enjoy the ride. Either way, it is an amazing adventure.
Photo opportunities abound in the pristine mountains of the Chugach Mountain Range. Protective outerwear (jackets, pants, and outer boots) provided, but dress warmly. This is a trip you NEVER forget, and most visitors say it was the highlight of their Alaskan vacation!!
